's speakers, building on the momentum of last night. how can you top michelle obama? >> believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our mortgage. yeah. we were so young, so in love, and so in debt. and that's why barack has fought so hard to increase student aid and keep interest rates down. because he wants every young person to fulfill their promise and be able to attend college without a mountain of debt. so in the end, for barack, these issues aren't political. they're personal. because barack knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it. and he wants everyone in this country, everyone, to have the same opportunity. he reminds me that we are playing a long game here. and that change is hard. and change is slow. and it never happens all at once. but eventually, we get there. we always do. we get there because of folks like my dad. folks like barack's grandmother. men and women who said to them
in with michele obama, a portion of michele obama's speech, what did you think of it? >> it was a great speech, it really was. so many personal anecdotes you could visualize. we were talking last week about how ann romney said a lot of great things about mitt romney but never gave you the visuals. john said it best. who in america are in that convention hall -- or in that convention hall watching the speech didn't get the image of a loving father struck with ms, seeing his two children sat the top of the stairs and fighting and struggling to get up those stairs to hug his children at the end of the day or fighting and struggling to get out of bad to go to work to give them a slice of the american dream. it was an absolutely fantastic speech. and the great line, absolutely loved the line, that being president doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> very personal, very revealing but it also might have accomplished something in terms of touching on some key areas that might have needed some work, not that the president, you would think, had a problem with the women's vote. >> right

years ago. also speaking tonight, first lady michelle obama. her job, reach out to women voters of both parties. cnn's edlavendera has a closer look. but, first, dana bash, what are the main priorities that democrats will be pushing tonight? >> reporter: well, democratic officials say the main priority is to remind people that this just isn't just about whether or not they should fire or hire again president obama. it's that it's going to be a choice. and this is really if you talk to any strategist of any party kind of the way you run an incumbent's re-election campaign. that it is a choice between the president and mitt romney. so they'll try to what they say is crystallize that choice between the two men. and they're also going to try to emphasize the fact that as president obama has been doing for months that they believe that the democratic party is the party for the middle class. and also talk about, they say, the accomplishments that they feel that the president hasn't gotten enough credit for, bailing out the auto industry. they believe the health care bill. they'll talk about t

[ applause ] >> it takes some brass to attack a guy for doing what you did. >> reporter: he went on, addressing welfare reform and the economy. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president re-election was actually pretty simple. pretty snappy. it went something like this. we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. >> reporter: he acknowledged the economy is still in recovery. but he asks -- >> are we better off than we were when he took office? >> reporter: president clinton did work in a plug or two for his own economic performance in the '90s. >> people ask me all the time how we got our budgets passed. what new ideas did we bring to washington? i always bring a one-word answer. ar

stuff. >>guest: it is a push back to the effort championed by first lady michelle obama that became the healthy hunger-free kids act of 2010. it caps the school lunches at 850 calories. the old minimum used to be 825 calories. the protests started. you mentioned the video made by students in kansas. it is entertaining. it shows the students exhausted and passing out. the active kids are not getting enough. by 1:30 or 2:00 they end up hungry and they go for the junk food. we talked with our medical "a" team and he said as long as there have been school lunches kids have complained about the almosts. >> it is good they express themselves. the expression is teaching them a lesson about the importance of food and what it means for their lives. i think you have to take it by individual case. parents should get involved. if a child feels hungry in school, a discussion has to be made and a good healthy choice can be introduceed. >>reporter: you are talking about federal regulation that paints with a broad brush and puts the athlete and the active students in the same category as the inacti

first lady michelle obama addressing the convention. >> ifil ray suarez is down there among the delegates where he'll be everyday and every night all week. ray? >> suarez: gwen and judy, the convention, as harry noted, was gaveled into order by debbie wasserman schultz and will turn to official business and housekeeping but now as official t official delegates are making their way into the hall it's well and truly under way with a parade of speakers including the first woman bishop of the african methodist episcopal church, the leader of the international service employees international union, mary kay henry, and the first woman three-star general in the u.s. army, claudia kennedy. it's interesting, they get to make the rebuttal case as the republican had their convention last week but you can already hear a mirror image of america being presented by the speakers of this convention. earlier financial journalists and author andrew tobias spoke of the democrats' support for same-sex marriage, which was widely deplored last week in tampa and earlier one of the secretaries of th
to the president. today first lady michelle obama visited a gathering of latino delegates and elected officials. >> all of our ciz deserve opportunity, whether it's passing health reform so families don't go broke because someone gets sick. whether it's helping folks stay in their homes or fighting for e dream act so that all the our children have opportunities worthy of their dreams and their promise. >> suarez: president has won praise from latino officials in removing the threat of deportation for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children-- the so-called dreamers. undocumented young adults carried banners saying, no papers, no fear in sunday's big demonstration at the democratic convention. >> which side of history it's going to be on with this issue. >> we want to know what side of history the president is going to be, if he will be helping the small communities and migrant communities. >> the national head of college democrats is a mexican american from texas. alejandra salinas says, sure, the dreamers can't vote, but their cause does drive support from
. that means making sure our laws preserve that right. >> wow. welcome back to "hardball." that was michelle obama speaking at the congressional black caucus this saturday night. she was referring to the concerted effort since 2010 of course to make it more difficult to vote, especially minoritiemi. this map shows the 17 states where laws have been passed since then making it tougher to vote now than it was in the last -- harder than the last election. so this year it's even more important that everyone who is eligible to vote i think get registered to vote and fight for that right to vote. today is national voter reg strikes day in this country. it's a two-pronged effort to get people register nded and make sure people know what sorts of documentation they need to vote on election day or earlier. mark morel is the president of the urban league and sponsored the national voter registration day, victoria is an nbc latino contributor. i want to talk, mark, thank you so much for coming on. here is your chance to make the case to people who might be disillusioned or discouraged because they've h
